The Best White Flower Girl Dresses and Headpieces

Updated on July 29, 2012

Choosing a Flower Girl Dress

Last year my daughter had the honor of being a flower girl in her uncle's wedding. As the plans evolved, the flower girl dress became an important part of the decision making. As the beautiful bride Sarah and I discussed the possibilities, we were amazed at the choices that were available. Short sleeve and sleeveless dresses are a perfect choice for a summer or for a warm destination wedding. Both the style of the dress and the material are important things to think about as you make your selection. As the bride, you want the flower girl's dress to fit in with the rest of the wedding, but it is also important that your youngest bridal party member is comfortable. Also, be sure that it is age appropriate for your little girl. You do not want something that is too childish for a slightly older girl and not too revealing for those who are younger. So here are some of the most popular choices for flower girl dresses and headpieces.

Short Sleeve and Sleeveless Flower Girl Dresses

Short sleeve and sleeveless dresses seem to be the most common choice for a flower girl since most weddings take place in the summer or ever more increasingly are destination weddings.

Organza is a very common material to have flower girl dresses made from. The shimmery shine that often overlays the tulle gives that magical, princess feel to the youngest member of your bridal party. The back of the dress is often just as eye catching as the front. Some have a beautiful row of satin buttons while others are graced with a gorgeous v neck back. The dresses each have a satin sash which tie in a bow in the back. The length of each dress will vary based on the height of the flower girl however T-length is the most common. The intricacy and style of each dress is a personal choice. Some brides prefer a well adorned dress while for others, less is more. Keep in mind that as you make your selection, you will need to choose a color. Most dresses offer the choice between white or ivory. If you are the mother of the flower girl making the dress selection, be sure to check with the bride for the correct color.

Flower Girl Dresses to Match the Bridal Party

Many brides want their flower girl to look like a little bride but also to tie into the color theme of the rest of the bridal party. Whether the dress you choose is traditional white or ivory, you can add your own modern touch to the dress by personalizing the dress. Adding a splash of the bridal colors with a sash around the little girl's dress is a perfect solution. These dresses often come in a wide variety of colors to meet the bridal color scheme. My daughter's dress was ivory with a chocolate brown sash adorned with a flower. We received so many compliments on her dress, everyone thought it was beautiful.

Imagine your little princess twirling around in a dress filled with flower petals. Some dresses come with extra little touches like a tulle overlay filled with pink petals that sway with every movement of the flower girl. Others are dotted with color throughout the dress such as the ivory dress with chocolate brown embroidery on it. The options to make your dress unique are seemingly endless.

Choosing the Perfect Flower Girl Headpiece

Choosing the right headpiece is almost as important as the dress. This is the crowning moment for your little princess. Some brides want to have the flower girl to have a veil type of headpiece that matches the brides. The flowers and ribbon on the first selection with the trail of ribbon flowing down the back gives the flower girl aura of innocence. The delicate flowers placed on the next headpiece exudes elegance. Others want their flower girl to have a tiara type of crown that emulates a princess. The sparkle of the tiara will catch everyone's eye as the little one leads the bride down the aisle with her trail of flowers. Tiaras can be adorned with rhinestones, crystals and pearls. With every turn of her head, your young flower girl with feel like a million dollars and will probably think that it is her special day! Tiaras can be overwhelming if it is too large or overly gaudy. Be sure to remember the age of your young bridal party member and keep it simple. Beauty and elegance is often about simplicity.

What ever you decide for your flower girl's dress and headpiece, she is sure to come close to being the star of the show! Your choice will be perfect for your celebration and will have all of your guests talking. Best of luck to you as you make your finally decisions for your big day and may you experience a lifetime of love and happiness and venture into this new time in your life.
